The ‘ultra-luxury’ Pico Bonito Lodge is one of Central America’s hottest new rainforest destinations, a paradise that’s home to half of Honduras’s 700 bird species—from the endangered and endemic Honduran Emerald hummingbird to the uncommon Keel-billed Motmot to the beautiful, brilliant blue Lovely Cotinga.
Situated between two fast-moving rivers—the Coloradito and the Corinto—the luxury lodge nestles in the lap of Pico Bonito National Park, where 270,000 acres of tropical rainforest rise from near sea level to the 8,000-foot peak that gives the park its name. Much of this land is unexplored and unexploited. Jaguars and Pumas still hunt here as howler monkeys roar to proclaim their territory.
The photo workshop will include a Macro focus on reptiles and amphibians as well as flowers and butterflies. We will spend time in blinds experiencing a photographing lekking manakins (small birds doing their mating dance). We will have special set-ups to photograph hummingbirds in the gardens and around feeders. Waterfall and landscape photography will be explored as will photoshop skills and image workflow.
